Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado

Open Question

On a 2006 chevy 2500 4X4 ,The blower resistor wires began burning,unplugged the resistor, stopping the smoke/burning. Removed 4 way resistor to see the elements were all blown off. If I make sure no wires are shorted and replace the resistor. Do ya think I'll be safe? Purple/white are the smokers. THANKS EVERYONE!~

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?

If it was the motor that went out then it would not blow at all. The resistor is the culprit that starts killing off speeds. It should be about $25 to $30 at an aftermarket store like autozone or advanced auto parts.

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?

Yes its the blower motor resistor.

More then likley theres some trash or something in it, or possibly the motor itself is on it's way out. There not that bad to pull out of that body car, just pull it out and see what you can see.

The blower motor is under the glove compartment

You can replace the resistor on your own. Please find a detailed diagram which would guide you to do it.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy trailblazer heater blower motor not working

You might wanna check and make sure the heater switch didn't go bad. It could even be the blower motor itself.

I had a truck about the same year with the same problem, it was the wiring harness, but id check the resistor and the fan first before replacing anythings,

SOURCE: Blower on my 2004 Chev Colorado only works on high setting #4.

You need a resistor pack, which is likely located in the air box, near the blower motor.

Remove heater control switch


Before removing the heater switch on this 2006 citroen hdi I would first have the blower motor checked and the most common reason for this and other blower problems would be the blower resistor.

Your blower works on and off at times, first locate the blower motor and the resistor. the blower motor is located on the heater box, look under the pass/side of the dash, you may have to remove under dash cover to see blower.
When you have located the blower now look to the side on the heater box, there you will see a connector plug, it plugs into a connection on the heater box, this will be the resistor, the resistor slides into heater box and the end of it bolts to box to hold it in place and then the connector plugs into it, if you can not locate it then follow wires that plug into blower , follow wires back they will lead you to resistor,
next time blower does not work wiggle connector to resistor and see if blower turns on, if it does then resistor is the problem. also unplug resistor plug at resistor and check for any burning of connectors at plug and inside resistor.

I would bet its a bad resistor or the plug is brunt due to high draw from bad connections, if plug has burn damage to connectors then replace the plug along with resistor.

Blower motor on a chevy colorado p/u truck 2006 only runs on high speed setting


The Blower Motor Resistor burned out. The resistor drops the voltage down for your lower speeds, when it dies you only 1 speed. It's mounted to the side of the Heaterbox under the dash. It'll have a Plug on it with 4 or 5 wires, should be held in with two 8mm bolts

Gmc 2006 Sierra fan switch was not working on all settings now after being set on high it would not shut off then it stopped but smoke began coming out from under the passenger side dash


There is a resistor board in there that controls the voltage to the blower fan. When the resistor dies the fan only runs on high. The bad part is it overheats the wires and starts burning things. You will probably need a socket and pigtail too. Both available from the dealer. Usually not very expensive and you can do it yourself.

2006 silverado 5 speed heat, the high speed is not working. I do have the 4 lower speeds


The switch, high blower speed relay or the wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. The highest setting 5 has no resistor, so the blower runs on high but the high current flow ends up burning up the switch's contact on that setting or the relay and may be the resistor wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. Common would be the switch it self, if the switch is good. Then it's going to be the blower relay or wire leads at the speed resistor by the blower motor under the glove box by the passenger leg compartment. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your Silverado running 100% again soon.

Ineed to replace a blower moter resister. only works on high setting


The blower resistor pack needs to be replaced, it's common for the blower speed resistors to burn up and will need to be replaced. It's easier to replace with the glove box out of the way. gmparts direct has the harness and resistor as a package deal. Their part number is PK15218254.

GM Parts list:

Resistor - p/n 15218254 $8.59*

Connector - p/n 15306069 $30.70*

Wiring harness - p/n 89019124 $20 *

You don't need to remove the glove box, just lay on the floorboard and look up under the dash. There's a 4-wire harness plugged into the resistor assembly (white plastic), in the bottom of the black heater blower shroud. Unplug the harness, remove two small screws, and pull down to remove the resistor assembly.

Good luck and merry xmass.

A/C smelled like smoke then blew 30A fuse - Silverado 1500 2004


You may want to change the blower motor as a precaution.
Do all the fan speeds work?
If not .....change the fan resistor board which is right beside the fan at the same time you change the blower fan motor.

2006 Hummer H3 a/c & heater fan/blower failed


Probably too late now, I am sure you have already fixed it, but mine did this and it was an electrical part that is mounted right beside the blower fan. The part was OK, but the plug into the part was arcing and burned out the connection. A Chevy mechanic told me this has been happening to MANY Chevy products. I had to buy a new part and plug assembly with new wires, about 100 dollars, and I spliced them together. It was an Easy fix, but I shouldn't have had to do it :(
